From 84 Charing Cross Road, by Helene Hanff
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COMRADE!
“I do love secondhand books that open to the page some previous owner read oftenest. The day Hazlitt came he opened to “I hate to read new books,” and I hollered “Comrade!” to whoever owned it before me.”
(Helene would have been 99 years old today!)
